Time for a round-up!
I haven't posted a round-up since September, so it's definitely time. And this has to be one of my favorites because seafood? I would eat it at EVERY meal if I could. Seriously! But there's another reason I'm posting a round-up today-
I've spent the last 2 days in the kitchen, up to my ears in potato parts and banging my head against the counter. What's going on? Gnocchi, that's what. I've been trying my hand at homemade gnocchi. You know, those little Italian potato dumplings that are like little clouds of dreaminess? It has not been going well. It turns out there are lots of mistakes to be made while attempting gnocchi. So far, I've had gnocchi that fell apart in the pot, I've had mushy little balls with a texture that can only be compared to snot, and finally, I had a dough that came apart at the seems.

I don't know why, but at this point all I hear is that Fred Armisen skit from Saturday Night Live where he plays a hispanic reporter who sighs, "Ay dios mio!" constantly. It makes me laugh. You gotta keep things light when messing up in the kitchen! 😂
Just know that once I figure these gnocchi out, I will share how that happened. After all, I am the girl who ruined 5 or 6 chickens (or maybe more!) before learning how to roast one 😁
And what better to share after lots of failures than bounties of successes? My thoughts exactly! So here you go, all you seafood lovers!
